APPLICATION FOR BENEFITS WITH VAC

Post by tiger660 on Thu 09 Mar 2017, 14:44

Good afternoon everyone,

I send a request for compensation for an injury that I have. The request was send 29 April 2016. They got all the information 14 June 2016. I just got off the phone with VAC and I was told that they are presently working on the requests for April 2016 and the date that they use is the date that all informations was received which in my case is 14 June 2016. So therefore I do not expect an answer before end of April or sometime in May.

I asked why it is taking so long, the answer plain and simple is: they have a lot of request and not too many people to process them. I fully understand that and I told her that I would send an email to the Minister and tell him to give them the help they need. I do not know if I can make a difference by myself, but together we can. If every veteran write to the Minister we can put some pressure on. We can bitch, complaint and whine as much as we want on this forum and it will not change nothing, they way we can change things is by writing an email to the Minister. I hope everybody on this forum will do the same. Have a good day.

Application for benefits with VAC

Post by metaller on Tue 18 Apr 2017, 19:25

If you are correct with your dates that you applied one year ago in 2016, they aren't processing you, your being duped. Take your applications directly into VAC office with a witness and an audio recorder and tell them you are audio recording the conversation and you would like all your applications and medical documents stamped "RECEIVED BY VAC" before the documents leave your sight. If they try to walk away with them, yell "get back here and stamp these documents before they leave my sight. They are using 2 electronic systems. The first is where a real decision letter is verified and electronically signed. When you mail your documents to Quebec, they are being photo copied, the originals go into the real electronic system(CSDN), a decision is granted awarding you your disability, the decision letter is then electronically signed, but, you will never see this decision letter.
The second set of photo copied documents are then sent by mail to PEI head office and put in an illegal hard copy file where the old software from the old electronic system is used to generate fake decision letters that award you half of what the real decision letter has given you, or you will be told you have not been awarded anything.

If you are putting in for family care giver relief you will see why everyone is being told no with the fake decision letters that have been hand signed. I got mine 2 years in a row, because I take it in to the office, audio record them and make them stamp received on my documents and get a copy of all documents I hand in. If you send in by mail, you have no proof that they received them or what they received. If you get a letter in the mail, if it has 2 envelopes(one inside the other with different addresses) then you are receiving fake correspondence from VAC which is being generated by using an old electronic system that was to be destroyed . If you go to court with these documents, they will say they aren't their documents. The signatures are always fakes as well on all correspondence and are always on a page by themselves.
Take your application and documents down to VAC office and audio record with a witness and make them stamp them right in front of you "received" and get a copy of all docs, you will be adjudicated on very quickly as you have proof they received the applications.
The biggest problem you have is that you have no proof that they received your application other than them lying to you on the phone that they are working on it. On MY VAC Account online also lies that tell you that your application is being processed, but this isn't in the electronic system. Its a smoke show.

Trust me, you wouldn't believe what I know.

A friend.

I wandered many times why they could not fit the signature on the first page.
I will look for some of those letters and post the names of those 'signed'.

Cheers

Tiger 660, Try using My Vac Account online when submitting. this sway you can see how the progress is moving forward and you will ensure that they did receive your documents.

Good advice bog6. In January last year I applied for PIA (CIA) through My VAC Account. The application was processed and approved in 16 weeks. I then applied for a reassessment for PTSD in April 2016 all necessary documents received by VAC by July 25th and was subsequently awarded an additional 15%,  by end of September 2016.

I suspect for whatever reason, applications received through My VAC Account are actioned quicker than mailed in applications.

Good luck everyone.

I applied for DA reassessment Aug 4 , 2016. All documents received November 2016. Called yesterday and apparently it's at "pay processing" as of April 7. No decision letter yet and myVac says it's still at step 3.

vet, same here. all docs received early dec. they told me it has been completed and it at the payment desk. she said that with the topup things have been a little backed up, and could take 2-3 weeks.
for MyVac update, i think something is going on there. I never did receive a message on myVac about the topup, but did get the letter monday (yes i have paperless selected). nothing shows up in myVac in the payment section for that either.

in addition, it doesn't show my PA payment date for april. it is almost as if myvac is not getting updated

I don't think they can handle the BS they created. For sure, will ask for hireing more of them to look 'after well-being' of veterans

Have you received your payment Yet?  Mine is still at step 3. Talked to them, and they said it has been in the payment office, and nothing new since the beginning of April on mine. Maybe in the next week or 2. So we are looking at 8 weeks just in the payment office. Then the letter still needs to be sent out, say what 3-4 weeks after that. Then the turn around for payment options another month..

I don't have a cm. had a great one, when I first started filing, then he let me know they hired more people and his workload got split, as he was double loaded.

New one called me emailed me once, then said would get a hold of me in a month or 2. That was 2 years ago. Found out recently when I asked, that my file was not assigned to any specific cm any more.

myVac finally said my reassesment was completed. even though i have it marked paperless nothing came though

talked to vac, he wouldn't say what the amount was, but that there was a payment option form, so there is at least an increase. suggested sending a mail to myvac asking for a copy though the system to speed things up.

i sent the request, and got a reply saying too bad, so sad.. they cant' send that through my vac. only 2 types of decisions can be sent, and this was not one of them. i don't know why they can't just scan and upload... a no brainer on that one to me.

don't have a CM, as i got dropped into the general pool. doesn't really matter, the last time i had to go into VAC, it took weeks for my PTSD to recover from that trip.

I guess i will wait the month or so it takes for mail from vac to come through, and then submit the payment option though myvac (see if they will at least accept that)
